I had said that I'm not buying any gifts until after Christmas. I don't know if I'll go through with that, but I know that after Christmas, you can stock up on those cologne gift sets, for at least 50% off, and save them for birthday gifts, baby shower gifts, gifts for a new bride, Valentine's Day gifts,and Mother's or Father's Day gifts. Also, after Christmas, winter clothes will be on clearance, to be cleared out for pre-Spring sales. So in late December and early January, you can buy dead of winter (January through March) clothing. When my kids were little, I'd buy their winter coats, when they'd be marked down 50-70% off. I'd also buy them big, so that they would get wear out of them.
